NaN and Blender seems to be discontinued as Ton & Joeri posted:
Okay here is how I look at it:
If I would have paid millions of euro for a piece of something and I was
half as angry on a certain management team as I am now, then I would
not except any of their new ‘plans’. Why would I?

Netventures owns Blender because they paid allot of money for it right?
I mean, if we buy a car with 3 people and I pay 75% of it’s price I think

green, even if you have ‘logic’ reasons for it.

O wait, and destroying my plans too! I had hired a CEO, CFO and

If other shareholders get frustrated by lack of interest of the main
